Allegheny College has announced the hiring of Tommy Pearce as the first varsity men’s lacrosse head coach in school history.
No stranger to building a new program, Pearce comes to Allegheny after serving as head coach at Frostburg State University since 2009, when the school resurrected varsity men’s lacrosse after a 30-year hiatus.
“I would like to thank Director of Athletics Portia Hoeg and the search committee for this exciting opportunity,” said Pearce. “My wife, Kelly, and I are eager to become a part of the Meadville and Allegheny College community. Allegheny is primed for the addition of men’s lacrosse. The beautiful campus and athletic facilities, the college’s excellent reputation, and membership in the extremely competitive North Coast Athletic Conference will not only attract outstanding student-athletes from surrounding areas, but will also draw interest from lacrosse players from across the country.”
“I am thrilled to get to work recruiting the inaugural recruiting class for Allegheny men’s lacrosse,” he continued, “and lay the groundwork for future success.”
